We’re Expanding Our Occupational Hygiene Department!

Here at Envirochem, we’re expanding our Occupational Hygiene Department and are pleased to welcome our new Head of Department Sam, along with a new Van to add to the fleet.

Within the department we can offer a wide range of sampling/analysis and consultation, including but not limited to:

  • Noise and Vibration Surveys – With our wide range of instrumentation we can gather analytical data concerning the impact of noise and vibration for demolition sites.


  • UKAS accredited sampling & analysis of total inhalable & respirable dusts – We are happy to undertake site visits, sampling and analysis, to meet the needs of our clients.


  • Local exhaust ventilation (LEV) testing – (LEV) checks help control the release of hazardous airborne substances from a process into the workplace environment.


  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) testing – The main aim of VOC analysis is to identify the types of VOCs present and their concentrations in work place environment.


  • Emissions testing for stack monitoring to technical guidance notes M1 and M2.


  • Air quality surveys.

Introducing our new Machine: Skalar Bluevision

Here at Envirochem, we are always looking at new ways we can improve our services, reduce turnaround times and offer more testing and analysis options. We recently invested in a new Machine: Skalar Bluevision – Continuous Flow Analyser, that does just that! 

This machine allows us to process more samples without further staff and more quickly, allowing us to reduce our turnaround times and offer more testing options.

It can test one sample for 8 different tests, that we would have beforehand done as separate tests, this massively reduces the time it takes to process samples.

  • Ammonia
  • Chloride
  • Fluoride
  • Phenol
  • Sulphate
  • Phosphate
  • Nitrate+ Nitrite
  • Nitrite

Regulate what you release into the atmosphere to reduce damaging the atmosphere and causing air pollution

Regulating the release of chemicals into the atmosphere carefully is important so it does not cause any danger or destruction to the environment. Ensure you’re responsible and get testing done, for more information and advice: envirochem.co.uk/coshh/vocs.html #environment #AirPollution

‘Air Change per hour’

‘Air changes per hour’ is the number of times the air is replaced in a defined space each hour. The number of these air changes that are required for a specific space is defined by its use. For example, the HSE guidance note EH22 ‘ventilation of the workplace’ requires 8 air changes per hour with a minimum requirement of 3 air changes per hour.

Guidance also recommends an air supply of 8 litres/second per person for open plan offices and a minimum of 5 litres/second per person for air conditioned spaces.

The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992, regulation 5 requires that ventilation systems are appropriately maintained in an efficient state and working order. Regulation 6 requires that you ensure effective ventilation for any enclosed workplace by providing a sufficient quantity of fresh air.

We can combine an air change test within a full air quality survey for work spaces to include particulate monitoring, bio-aerosols and VOC’s as well.

UK Emissions Interactive Map

UK Emissions Interactive Map

Check out this interactive emissions map. You can check out what emissions are likely to be high in your area from a variety of different pollutants from NOX, PM and a variety of others.

We are capable of sampling or monitoring most of these emissions, so if you are worried that you are being exposed to high levels of pollution or you need to check that the emissions you are releasing are within the limits contact us.

Check out the interactive map here: http://naei.beis.gov.uk/data/gis-mapping

Wood Burning Stove Pollution in London

Wood burning stoves could be banned in our capital in certain highly polluted areas. The burning of wood releases fine particles that are harmful to human health. It is noted that some exceptions may be made for the more modern and efficient wood burning stoves with the main focus on reducing inefficient open fires.

This is part of a wider plan to improve air quality in London through limiting emissions from boats, cars, diesel powered machinery from building sites and from construction work itself.

Here at Enviorchem, we can carry out Emissions testing and Air quality surveys;

Indoor construction dust

Conducting construction work inside raises a new set of challenges, especially when working around sensitive equipment that can be adversely impacted by dust.

Recently we help monitor dust levels before, during and after works that were carried out over night to limit the impact on daytime production in the factory. With the data we collected we were able to identify when dust levels had reduced to acceptable levels to resume normal work and how long this settlement took.

We also undertook additional monitoring of total inhalable dust, respirable dust and silica content that the construction workers were being exposed during their work.

Air Quality is a serious Issue in the UK and across the world.

Air quality is a serious issue in the UK and across the world. Recently a cricket match between India and Sri Lanka was halted due to poor air quality that was recorded at 15 times that of the World Health Organisation toxicity maximum. Players where leaving the field vomiting and had to wear masks to reduce the impact on their health.


More needs to be done about air quality across the world, including the UK.  With potential sources from vehicles, manufacturing and construction everybody needs to do their bit in limiting harmful emissions. One of the first steps to combat these issues is to monitor different air pollutants and protect those most likely to be harmed.

Envirochem can carry out a variety of air quality monitoring and surveys, for more information on this and all our services please call on 01329 287 777 or fill out the form below;
